A bus driver hit a pedestrian in Highbury Corner today.

The London Ambulance Service (LAS) was called at about 1.15pm to reports of a bus in collision with a woman outside Highbury & Islington Station.

Her injuries aren't life-threatening or life-changing, a Met Police spokesperson confirmed.

The driver stopped at the scene and no one has been arrested.

An LAS spokesperson said: "We dispatched an ambulance crew and a medic in a car to the scene.

"We assessed a woman at the scene and took her to hospital."

Last month, a hit-and-run driver mounted the pavement outside the station and collided with a man.

The victim, in his 20s, was taken to hospital where his injuries were assessed as not life-threatening.

Police believed the driver "deliberately mounted the pavement" after an earlier alteration.

Transport for London hadn't installed protective seating blocks and bollards in the station forecourt at the time of the incident.

Hours earlier, a female cyclist was left lying in the road with head injuries in nearby Fieldway Crescent. A neighbour said the road has become a dangerous rat-run since Highbury Corner Roundabout was opened to two-way traffic in April.
